Publishing Conference Papers
Australian Journal of Professional and Applied Ethics
Selected papers from the 17th conference of the AAPAE will be published in a special 2010 issue of the Australian Journal of Professional and Applied Ethics [Rated B by the ARC].
Presenters who would like to have their AAPAE Conference paper considered for publication in this issue should send a final version of their paper to the Managing Editor (details below) by Friday 9th July. Submitted papers will then be sent to referees.
Please note that the AJPAE refereeing process is separate to the refereeing process which some papers will have undergone for the Conference itself. All papers submitted to the AJPAE will be refereed, irrespective of whether they were refereed for the Conference. Papers that have been refereed for the Conference can be revised before submission to the AJPAE.
Authors whose papers are recommended for publication by referees will be contacted as soon as possible and advised of any revisions that need to be considered, and of the date by which the final version should be submitted.
For Bioethics papers it is suggested that authors consider the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry.
It is a Springer journal, has just been rated A by the ARC, has wide database listing and will shortly have an impact factor.
Refereed track papers are to be submitted consistent with Australian Journal of Professional and Applied Ethics author guidelines (see below).
Abstracts and full papers from the refereed track will be published in a Conference Proceedings CD in a manner compliant with DEEWR requirements.
Authors should submit a short biography of no more than 100 words with their paper.
Papers for this track should be submitted to the by C.O.B. 9th April 2010.
Relevant Author Guidelines for AAPAE conference papers in the refereed stream.
Submissions must be in English, and must be typewritten or printed, double-spaced, using one side of the page.
Articles are normally not more than 6000 words in length.
Papers submitted for the refereed stream will be blind refereed. In order to facilitate double-blind refereeing, the author(s)'s name(s) should not be shown on the manuscript, and all identifying references to the author(s)'s own work(s) should be masked or omitted.
Please note that the Conference Convenor will communicate only with the 'first author' of a paper. In the case of co-authored papers it will be the responsibility of the 'first author' to pass on to the co-author(s) communications from the editors.
Manuscripts should conform to journal style [see below]. When a paper has been accepted, author(s) will be required to ensure that it conforms to journal style, and to supply an electronic version.
The Oxford English Dictionary is the journal's standard for spelling.
Substantial quotations should be indented without quotation marks. Other quotations should be enclosed by single quotation marks. Double quotation marks should be used only as innermost quotation marks within single quotation marks, or where necessary to ensure fidelity to another's work.
Published works referred to in the text should be in parentheses containing author, date (and page number(s) if necessary).
Books and journal articles should be listed as follows:
Macpherson, C.B. (1972). The Political Theory of Possessive Individualism: Hobbes to Locke. Oxford University Press, London.
C. Dianne Martin and David H. Martin (1990). 'Comparison of Ethics Codes of Computer Professionals', Social Science Computer Review, Vol. 9, pp. 96-108.
Presenters may also choose to have their paper considered for the non-refereed stream of the conference.
Presenters in this category should submit an abstract of approx. 250 words to the by C.O.B. Friday 30 April 2010.
It would be helpful if presenters in this category could clarify that their paper is intended for the non-refereed stream when they submit their abstract.
Innovative workshops have been introduced to the conference program this year, introducing new approaches to either: (a) Teaching ethics or (b) Ethical leadership. Submissions for this category on either of these topics should include a 1-2 page discussion of the proposed demonstration. Include content and goals; format (e.g., demonstration of teaching materials, role play); target audience; and value of your presentation for teaching ethics or ethical leadership. The deadline for submission to this category is 9th April 2010.
Another exciting addition to our program is: “A Session with an Author” where authors are encouraged to submit their book/s on professional and applied ethics for group discussion and/or review over lunch or a dedicated time slot. Submissions for this session may be made by an author or others for a session which critically evaluates a recent book in practical or professional ethics. The proposal can be in the form of a panel, including formal papers or a roundtable discussion. The submission should indicate the title of the book and date of publication as well as all the panelists if applicable. A copy of the book must be submitted for review.
Authors may also propose a “Lunch with an Author” session. Books must be related to the Association’s interests and goals, and published within the last two years. Please submit three copies of a 1-2 page description of your book, and supply a copy of your book. Annual Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to sign up to attend Lunch with an Author with the author of their choice on allocated days. Please note that authors pay for their own meals.
The deadline for submission of a proposal for a book review in either category [Session with an Author or Lunch with an Author] is 9th April, 2010.
All submissions should be directed to Dr Betty Chaar.
